    We were worried it would be too fancy for our kids (3.5 and 11 months), but they made us feel very welcome. They had a kids menu and coloring, and were thoughtful about getting the kids food quickly. Such a gem to find a place that feels fancy enough for date night but also fine for kids!

    We chose this restaurant for a 21st bday dinner - they were very nice - offered complimentary glass of champagne and free dessert! Totally unexpected but appreciated. The cocktail drinks were excellent and starters were great. The only downside was that they have a brunch oriented and limited menu on Sundays (and my fault for not digging deeper into website.) That was not what we were hoping for.

    We had the ceviche, there was a lack of shrimp, the shrimp was overcooked (marinated too long),lack of fresh most likely made too far in advance, vegetables, mostly cucumbers(more like a cucumber salad) and the saltines as part of this dish was sad, should have been tortilla chips, tostadas, fresh sour dough bread or crostini bread. Rate only on the ceviche. Normally rate a 4-5 on other items.

    Date Night at Merchant on Tuesdays is great. Good value and good food in a great atmosphere. The date night menue reflected most things on the regular menu. There was one red and one white wine to choose from and both were good options. The portions were to share between both parties and were ample, but you need to be on board with a 2 for 1 selction in each catagory. Sevice was good, with the exception that our "snack" and "starter" came out at the same time. Then we recovered before our "entre" appeared. I did order a cocktail in addition and although it was good, I have to say I was disappointed that when wanting to select the type of vodka learned it was "pre-mixed". I think of Merchant as a kind of cocktail bar too, so this was disapointing. I was expecting craft cocktails, not premixed drinks. All in all it was a great night out with another couple and I would go back again!

    It was pretty good! I liked the atmosphere! The service was good! The food was pretty and good! The fish fry isn’t a classic Wisconsin fish fry which I could’ve known if I read the menu more closely. Enjoyed our time and will likely be back! PS if you go to the bathroom looking at doors it’s women’s, gender neutral, then men’s but if you forget, the staff are more than happy to help you with the signage.

    Handy because we could get a brunch reservation. They weren't busy on Sunday and it was quiet, which was good. Our server Grant was great. Service was slowish- not his fault. Menu and food was ok. We probably won't be back. Not because it was bad, just wasn't that great.

    Only disappointment was in ordering Diet Coke. We ordered 2 with dinner and were served in VERY small rocks glasses. When my fiancé asked for a refill- they brought him a can (which nearly filled both glasses). Then we got the bill…$3 each. Nice rip off.

    I sincerely cannot remember the last time I left a restaurant without being served. We had reservations for 5pm. Showed up at 4:58pm. We were seated promptly. 10 minutes later we still didn't have a server (though the hostess had brought water). No one even looked at us, even though we were seated directly next to a serving station and the front of house manager was glancing at tables regularly. And the restaurant was 2/3 empty. This was their second chance. We had been months ago and didn't have a great experience. But it was busy and we were a large group. So we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Shame on us. We will not be back.

    We visited as part of Madison Restaurant Week. The menu was wonderful. I was torn as to what my choice was to be for both starter and entree. Of the four of us, three had the hanger steak. Two were absolutely delightful, tender and flavorful. Mine was a little tougher but the flavor was great. I wouldn’t hesitate to try it again. The wine selection was very good. I was also glad to have booked a reservation for “Tini Thursday for a classic martini. Our spouses chose a Regret. Those are fantastic! Our waitress, Molly, couldn’t have been better or more attentive. A real addition to have on the staff. Overall, it was a delightful evening enjoying good food and drink with friends for a leisurely dinner.

    My friend and I enjoyed brunch on Sunday morning. We had an enjoyable meal. The server, Cole, was excellent in all regards: friendly, helpful with requested menu substitutions, attentive, and prompt with coffee refills. We had a relaxing meal, and did not feel rushed in any way.

    $5 for the world’s most terrible plain drip coffee is completely insane
